Through the generosity of regional corporations and foundations, donors,
friends and employees of Saint Clare's Health System, more than $8.5
million dollars of the $11 million cost of
The Katena Center for Mother and Child has been raised to date, including an extraordinary gift of $5 million
from Kate M. Tiedemann, a member of the Saint Clare's Foundation Board
It is heartening to know that our new birthplace has been funded almost
entirely by supportfrom our community. Better yet, the community can still play a vital role. For gifts of $1,000
or more to Saint Clare's Foundation, you can share the joy of baby's
arrival with a solid wood replica of a child's "baby block."
Individually hand-made, the block (available in a choice of four colors) will bepersonalized with your name as well as the name and birth date of your child, grandchild,
niece or nephew. The blocks can also be inscribed in honor or in memory
of a loved one should you so choose. The colorful Saint Clare's Baby
Block will be prominently displayed on an impressive, handmade wooden
bookshelf in the new Center a focal point for new families and visitors as well.
The Katena Center for Mother and Child also accepts donations in any amount. Your continued support and generosity
will allow the Center to reach its $11 million goal and ensure that Saint
Clare's can provide the region with the highest levels of care for
mothers, newborns, and the entire family.
